Kansas City Royals
The Royals hit as a big dog for us on Monday. Nate Karns was good once again, striking out 10 and allowing two runs in 6.1 innings pitched.
Drew Butera homered and Kansas City owned the middle innings. Matt Strahm and Joakim Soria finished it off for the Royals.
There aren’t any numbers available at the moment for Tuesday’s matchup, which pits Chris Young against Matt Andriese. Young has thrown 10.2 innings out of the Royals’ bullpen this season, appearing in seven games that have all been Royals’ losses.
The 37-year-old and original Professor makes his first start of this season, working on a 4.22 ERA and 1.69 WHIP.
Tampa Bay Rays
Then there’s Andriese, 2-1 on the year with a 3.09 ERA. I like what I’ve seen out of the guy because he’s consistent and predictable.
Andriese has averaged a shade below six innings per start this season and he’s yet to be pulled in the middle of an inning.
He has walked three in each of his last two starts, which is a bit of a blip for him. I don’t expect any long-term control issues with him. He very well could have an ERA beginning with 2 after this game.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. Tampa Bay Rays MLB Prediction: Tampa evens the series.
Young probably won’t be able to give the Royals much length, nor many shutdown innings either. Tampa should be no cheaper than -140.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Tampa Bay
I’m playing the Rays up to -150 when the odds come out.
